I'm trying to remove the playfield from this machine. It's being being held down somehow but I can't see where. Anyone know the trick? Thanks!

Those things have what they called an auto clamp:

Yea pull that big metal bar pictured towards you as you lift up on the playfield. Do it with the game OFF or you might get bit! That’s sort of like sticking your hand down a groundhog hole.

I once saw a "Hurdy Gurdy" with a broken in half playfield. Auto-clamp stronger than crowbar!
